The Silver Bank 1804, Alderman John Rose.
This note is interesting in that there is only one owner named on it. Were there many Private Banks with just one partner, or am I missing something?
The design of the note is similar to notes of a bank of the same name but with different partners named on its notes.
I have to see if I can find a pic of one of the other notes.
Three Shillings Nine and a Half Pence note. Zany denomination too.

I have seen other examples where just one partner is listed. The legal maximum was 6 partners but I am not aware of a restriction requiring more than one partner. The odd denomination relates to the fact that it is equivalent to 1/6th of a Guinea. This denomination was issued to compensate for the lack of silver coinage and such notes were known as Silver Notes.
There was also a Silver Bank based in Malahide with partners, Talbot and Glascock. I attach an example of their silver note.
